It is worth mentioning that due to the pressures on the tourism market due to the negative international developments and the deteriorating situation mainly in third countries, the tanks that have now been left open for the destinations of N.. Aegean, is Germany, England, France, Poland and the Czech Republic.
However, even in open markets to our country like Germany, after the outbreak of cases in many Mediterranean destinations, the climate of uncertainty caused by the ever-changing indicators significantly affects the mood for travel, which directs a significant percentage of tourists to travel within their country.
For the accurate calculation of the total number of visitors to Cyclades and Dodecanese should also be taken into account the passengers who travel through the international airport "Eleftherios Venizelos" with domestic flights but also the passengers who travel through the ferry network.
